Is It Possible for a Guy's Penis Size to Be Too Big?

When it comes to talking smack and sizing up egos in the guys' locker room, penis size is one way for guys to feel like they're either on the top (or the bottom) of the pack. But the age-old saying "size matters" really doesn't have merit when it comes to the bedroom—after all, it's what they can do with what they've got, right? 

That's how Shape sexpert Dr. Logan Levkoff feels—especially when it comes to a guy being "too big." If you're a Sex and the City fan, you might be flashing back to a particular episode when Samantha (who had her fair share of sleepovers with guys of all shapes and sizes) couldn't handle a particular "Mr. Too-Big." If that had you panicked at the idea of monster-size guys where sex just would not work, there's good news: Levkoff says that it really is possible to make it work. (Speaking of peen problems, did you know it's possible to break a penis?)

For one, what's too big for one person might not be just right for someone else, says Levkoff. And, with the average penis size hitting about 5.2 inches you'll probably be fine with whatever comes your way. But if your partner's penis is a little large for your personal comfort, there are four key steps to making it work: spending time on foreplay (because when you're aroused, your vaginal actually gets longer and wider), using lube (it's your BFF in this case), being strategic about your sex positions, relaxing, and—the most important—talking with your partner about it. (Scared? Here's Levkoff's guide on how to talk to your partner about what you want in bed.)
